Marvel Comics has passed an exclusive teaser into the ComicBook.com inbox. The second teaser with "Dead No More" gives us a new clue as to just who is coming back to life. It looks like it'll be someone in the Spider-Man corner of the world, if that spider web can be trusted.
Spider-Man has had many people die in his life, of course, both hero and villain and of course civilian. His career started with the death of his Uncle Ben. It hit a turning point at the death of Gwen Stacy. It was recently reinvigorated when he came back into his own mind and body, leaving one of his greatest foes, Dr. Otto "Doc Ock" Octavius seemingly dead and gone.
So is it one of those three coming back? Is it some combination? The Free Comic Book Day solicitation, which includes a story that serves as a prelude to the "Dead No More" storyline, hints that it may be more than one comeback:
"If you got a chance to bring back someone who died, would you? And how will CLASSIFIED deal when ones they thought long dead once again walk the earth?"
So, could Spider-Man be seeing the return of not just one person, but more, or even all of the people that have died in his life over his decades-long career. FCBD is the first Saturday of May, so we don't have too much longer until we find out more.
Oh, and the red curtain? Well, that sure seems to be a nod across the country to the distinguished competition and their own teaser of a "Rebirth."
